“Eat, this is My Body; Take, Drink ye My Blood of the New Covenant”
Red-Blood Nights of Redemption
It was a solemn evening. The nail-biting moments of betrayal, trial, suffering and death were approaching menacingly. Like the Passover of old, it was “a night to be much observed” (Ex. 12:42). Back then, actual Paschal lambs were slain and eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs, with the blood of the lambs daubed on the doorposts of the Israelites (Ex. 12:6-8).
Israel’s redemption was close at hand. After a prolonged challenge to God who had brought upon the Egyptians a series of plagues, the Pharaoh was unnerved but would still not let Israel go!
